About Ipomoea

Ipomoea or ‘Mina’ are annuals, twining perennials or evergreen sub-shrubs with large ovate foliage, long, slender stems and funnel-shaped flowers which are formed into clusters or left as solitary structures throughout summer. Ipomoea are best suited to flower beds and borders within courtyard, cottage and informal garden settings. You should expect to see Ipomoea grow to an approximate height of between 2-6m (6.5-20’) and a spread of 1m (3’). Please take care when handling Ipomoea, as they are highly toxic if ingested into your system.

How to plant Ipomoea

Ipomoea are best planted in moist, well-drained soil of sand, chalk and loam within an acidic, alkaline or neutral PH balance. They are best positioned in an area of full sun. Heavy soils can be amended with organic matter to improve drainage. Dig a hole that is the same depth and twice the width of your plant, spreading the roots out before settling into place. Space plants with enough room for each to grow to their mature spread. After planting, water thoroughly and deeply.

How to care for Ipomoea

Ipomoea will require protection from cold temperatures - transplant Ipomoea to an appropriate environment such as a greenhouse or conservatory. Keep soil moist and water when required, especially during periods of drought. Mulch around the base of your plants to suppress weeds and to retain moisture levels. Provide support in the form of a trellis or fence as Ipomoea progress to their mature height.

How to propagate Ipomoea

It is possible to propagate Ipomoea by seed.
